After 18 years, it is time! We are in the process of raising $110,000 to purchase new high school marching band uniforms plus black dresses and black tuxedos for the symphonic band and chamber singers. As of mid March, we are already 27% to our goal that we hope to meet by December to have these uniforms for the 2022 season. A donation form can be downloaded here.
